Mark Nuccio, principal clarinetist of the Houston Symphony Orchestra, will join the Northwestern University, Bienen School of Music as a lecturer of clarinet beginning Fall 2019. Nuccio will be working alongside Steven Cohen, associate professor and coordinator of the winds and percussion program, and Leslie Grimm, senior lecturer, and wind chamber music coordinator.

When asked about the opportunity, Nuccio said “This is an opportunity to pay it forward in the tradition of Robert Marcellus. I am excited for the new challenge!”
